Am I too young for hot flashes? Only 28. They come out of nowhere and I feel so gross for the next few minutes. Nothing helps them, but when they're over it's like nothing has happened.Answer Question

At 28 I'd say it's a sign you need to go visit with your doctor. Your doctor can detect a lot of hormone problems just by running blood tests. I experienced hot flashes in my late 20s and early 30s. My doctor initially suspected it was premature menopause, but it turned out to be a thyroid issue.

I'm 47 and have menopausal hot flashes. I also had them in my 20's when I was on the pill and in my 30's when I was breastfeeding. They're caused by surges of estrogen.
